Lifelong Saints Fan Gets VIP Treatment as Louisiana Lottery Prize Winner

Posted May 19, 2011

Winner toured team facility and had lunch with Coach Payton.

Lifelong New Orleans Saints fan Jake Warren began his journey Wednesday as the Louisiana Lottery’s 2011 Saints Season Prize Package winner, as he, his fiancé Kyle Portie and two friends enjoyed lunch with Head Coach Sean Payton and toured the practice facility.

Warren won the once-in-a-lifetime experience prize during the Lottery’s final World Champions New Orleans Saints second-chance drawing held March 10.

“I’ve been to a few games over the years and training camp in the summer time,” said Warren.  “I’ve even gotten to meet some of the players at camp, but nothing comes close to this.”

Warren, who turned 21 years old shortly after the Saints won Super Bowl XLIV, had plenty of questions for Payton during their lunch in the team’s cafeteria. Payton provided great inside information and shared funny stories with the winner and his guests.

Saints Owner/President Tom Benson stopped by for a surprise visit before the group took photos holding the Lombardi trophy and threw the football in the indoor facility.

 “I really can’t believe I actually won something, especially this,” reflected Warren. “I’ve been a Saints fan all my life.”

Warren won the prize when his Lottery scratch-off ticket, World Champion New Orleans Saints, was selected during a second-chance drawing. As the winner, Warren also received four Plaza Sideline 2011 season tickets, a 2011 parking pass and four pre-game field passes.
